Forecasting School Enrollment

ESBC and SC meet jointly

Hopkinton is seeing "Super-heated real estate activity"

 

by Muriel Kramer

August 20, 2013 — The Elementary School Building Committee (ESBC) continues to wait to hear from the Massachusetts Building Authority (MSBA) with possible next steps if invited to partner with the MSBA on a construction project as part of the Center School solution. In the meantime, the work to gather data and shape the process continues.  Last night the ESBC and School Committee met in a joint session to hear from Don Kennedy representing NESDEC on enrollment projections. The New England School Development Council (NESDEC) is a private group that provides support services to school districts in the areas of planning, executive searches, professional development and more.

                Dr. Kennedy first presented the current projections to the SC in June 2013, and he indicated that the data has not changed since then, but may soon.  Due just after Labor Day is a projection based on the 2010 Census done by the Donahue Institute at UMASS Amherst; this projection is done every ten years following the Federal Census. Additionally in October, Hopkinton will have the data on this year’s actual numbers versus the projections. Both pieces of data will shape NESDEC’s projections for student enrollment into the future.

                Dr. Kennedy, speaking to the data, likened the projection effort to forecasting the weather; “The forecast for the first five years is likely be very accurate. We are less sure farther out.”

                Many factors drive the data. While there are currently fewer women in the ages ranging from 24 to 44 in town, Hopkinton is a community that consistently draws a high number of families moving in with young children and the realtors are having another big year.  Additionally, construction projects online are slated to add 100 to 125 new units occupied each year in the near term.  Dr. Kennedy likened the next ten years to the growth Hopkinton experienced in the 1990’s. “It looks like you’re going into another banner decade. We think you’re in a period of super-heated real estate activity.”

                Currently the data, considering known factors, indicate Hopkinton will see a net drop in students over the next five years and then in the following five years a small increase.

                Pam Waxlax, representing the Appropriation Committee on the ESBC, asked about the likelihood of the state mandating full day kindergarten.  Kennedy answered that while a mandate was unlikely other factors could impact that. There may continue to be incentives for districts to consider expanding full day k as an option for parents.  Kennedy also spoke to the notion that the district might consider an expanded approach to service for pre-kindergarten age children; currently the district provides pre-k to children needing additional educational support and a matching number of typically developing 4 year olds. According to Kennedy, “It wouldn’t surprise me to see the district target a long range goal to service a larger percentage of typically developing 4 year olds.”

                Selectman and ESBC member John Mosher asked about targeting flexibility in the building project. Speaking from his experience with a building project in Brookline and past projects in Hopkinton, ESBC Vice-Chairman Mike Shepard suggested that the MSBA was likely to support a project that addressed current demands versus future needs.  He asserted that it will be important to design a facility that provides core facilities plus flexible classroom space. “It’s the core facilities that are expensive; classrooms are cheap.”  He added that it was a more saleable approach for the public as well.

                Dr. Kennedy added that the delivery of education has dramatically changed in the last fifty years. The challenge is to look ahead fifty years when designing a school.

MetroWest Stakeholders Support TechSandBox Expansion in Hopkinton

 

TechSandBox, Inc. (August 19, 2013; Southborough, MA) – The innovation center/ incubator that launched this May in Southborough confirms that is has signed a multi-year lease with Southfield Properties, as part of the future Hopkinton Innovation Park.

The destination for science and technology entrepreneurs in MetroWest, TechSandBox has received support from local stakeholders in order to expand to a facility that has the additional assets needed.

 

“In the past few months, we’ve been asked for a light load lab for prototype assembly, space to secure a few (IT) servers, and a rent-a-bench space for life sciences and have requests from partner organizations for conference space for over 100 people,” noted Barbara Finer, CEO and Founder of TechSandBox. “We’ve been extremely fortunate to have had Becker College provide its Southborough facility, covering many of the expenses for our initial phase; moving TechSandBox to the Hopkinton facility will enable us to meet the demand for increased services.” ~ Contributed Content, HopNews photo.

Would You Like Flies With That?

August 18, 2013 — This turkey vulture photographed today in the driveway to the snow dump on Cedar Street, which is also the dumping ground for carrion picked up by the highway and police, enjoys what looks like the last bit of its meal. It is likely a recent skunk roadkill, judging from the overwhelming fresh skunk smell that was prevalent at the scene, as well as the tufts of white fur at its feet. According to multiple sources, the turkey vulture's diet consists mainly of carrion, and so it is very unlikely that a struggle took place before dinner.

    
Nature's Palette

August 18, 2013 — Mushroom walks up to the bar and orders a drink.

           Mushroom says, "Why not, I'm a fun guy." 

           If the mushroom knew any better, he would know that "fungus" is the singular form of the word, and "fungi" is the plural form, but is not pronounced the same as "fun guy."

Check the video out above with some extended family of the Editor, with 18 month-old Austin being the first to point out an ULV flying above, and later doing a great job conducting the performers. Allie and Lexie and Rich had fun, too.

Tidying Up

August 16, 2013 — Jack Nealon tidies up at his family's 34 Main Street property, next to the properties just purchased by Gregory Mazur.
         Inasmuch as the 34 Main Street property is used in part for residential purposes, the town bylaw requires that the side setback for a building on the new property next door must be 10' from the property line, which would put the buildings about 15' apart on the Main Street side.

          If 34 Main Street abandons the residential use on the second floor, then the side setback is 0' from the property line for the new building. In any case, the street frontage only needs to be 5' from the street.

          The side of the new property next to Hopkinton Drug could be built with 0' side setback, right along the property line. However, to construct a building with windows on the property line may require relief from state fire prevention statutes restricting them.

          The building purchased yesterday (7 Walcott Street) by Mr. Mazur is more than 75 years old, which will require a permit with a demolition delay of six months if he intends to raze it, which he must do in order to use the property for parking as he has stated, but only if the Historic Commission sees any value in the home.
